    The 51st State of the USA will be~~

    For all practical purposes Israel is America’s 51st State. The US gives Israel 10’s of $billions of dollars each year and yet American Citizen’s did not vote for this.

    What’s up?

    I think it is time for a national vote on this.


    Either we bring in Israel as our 51st State and they pay their fair share or we stop the $billions in handouts.

    How do you vote-?

    This report provides an overview of U.S. foreign assistance to Israel. It includes a review of past aid programs, data on annual assistance, and analysis of current issues. For general information on Israel, see CRS Report RL33476, Israel: Background and U.S. Relations, by Jim Zanotti. Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $127.4 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance.

    BTW We, as in American citizens owe Israel nothing, nada, zip so I as---

    In Jerusalem Israeli’s spit on Christians and the US press never reports it.

    What’s up------?

    We have a number of territories that would qualify for statehood first. Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, Marianna Islands. If we had some Congressional representation from these small island territories, all desperately endangered by climate change, we could perhaps have enough congressional support to reinstate all of the environmental policies overturned by Trump's executive orders (legally or illegally or pending before the courts, who knows?)

    I wish America would adopt Canada already. We could toss out our effeminate "fearless" leader, eliminate the border and move to warmer climates, stop bragging about healthcare, stop pretending we're polite yet acting out passive aggressively, and stop bashing Americans because Canada is boring and but a blip on the radar. :ebil:

    How many billions did Obama give Iran, our sworn enemy, bent only upon our destruction, and that of Israel?

    Yes! In fact our Prime Minister is shown publicly playing with barbie dolls and My Little Pony for the sole purpose of throwing a red herring. :)

    the entire NT works at deconstructing this idea that Israel means ethnic Jews limited to a geographical area until Revelation comes up then all of a sudden it's literal and this means we must protect and serve the literal nation of Israel no matter what the cost.

    edit: corrected spelling of Israel, thanks @chuckpeterson for pointing it out

    Taiwan could have been a US State.

    Taiwan belonged to Japan for 50 years by WW2. After America defeated Japan in WW2, America forced Japan to give Taiwan back to China. Not many people in Taiwan actually wanted that result.

    America could have taken Taiwan for itself and made it a state. Then my wife could become the first woman president of America!

    Everyone is intitled to an opinion, and nothing here requires that I agree with yours, which I don’t

    BTW: It's "Israel", not "Isreal".,.,.,,.Isreal is a prostitute living in Miami.

    Israel is real, lol. must be a freudian slip (about the nation not the prostitute)

    BTW: it's entitled not "intitled" (even if you think its an alternative spelling)

    Yeah, um, it's already the State of Israel, so there you go; but our white 5-point stars don't work for them 'cause they're very particular about a 6-pointed blue one, soo...

    When I was born we just had 48 stars on the big flag and 13 on the little flag. They since added 2 stars to the big one and took our little one away from us altogether ('cause of the #13, I'm pretty sure). I always thought Puerto Rico would be our 51st State, and they have their own star and can bring us 5 extra stripes; but now my thinking is that our 51st State will come from a split of one of the States we already got - probably progressive California, the 2-halves of Idaho (no, not I de ho), the State of Chicago, or turning Washington DC into the 51st State. Splitting States is actually how many of our states were formed. Los Angeles would otherwise be part of Georgia.
